Did you ever try the mk3 part ? did it work ??Same here. I need one too. I may try a mk3 tie down or just make a custom one
I have not tried it yet but will soon. I'm in the middle of a 7mgte swap and I have the mk3 tie down from my mk3 donor car. So I'll see if it works and let you know.
Hey Whitey, just wondering if you've had a chance to try the mk3 battery hold down yet ? I'm still thinking the mk3 part may fit with some minor modifications, I'm still looking for a good solution for myself.I have not tried it yet but will soon. I'm in the middle of a 7mgte swap and I have the mk3 tie down from my mk3 donor car. So I'll see if it works and let you know.
I got it, the P/N for the mk3 hold-down is 7440414310I've got a brand-new MK-II hold down I haven't used yet. I suppose I should go buy a MK-III hold down and compare the two.
Anybody have a part number or source for the MK-III hold down? I'm feeling pretty lazy today after Supras in Vegas, nd doan't feel like looking for myself.....
that was quick ! It may need some modifications to fit, lets see.MK-III hold down clamp got here yesterday afternoon. I'll do a side-by-side after I have my "Morning Coffee".....
That's pretty good news so far. A small cut and bend, and we could have a solution for all mkII owners (hopefully).The center-to-center distance of the bolt holes looks the same, but the end that bolts down to the core support has less of an angle on the MK-III clamp.
It looks to me that if you notch the metal and bend the tab up a bit it will fit OK.
Excellent reporting. Such a small difference between the two actually !The OEM MK-II clamp snuggles down to the battery and the core support as shown below:
